She’s a Girlfriend of a Boyfriend of Mine

Hi folks!

I’ve had a busy week.

Two old friends from the 70’s and 80’s, men I thought had died,
came back into my life this week.

I have not seen either of them in over 20 years.

One of is a successful artist in Vancouver and the other
teaches writing here in San Francisco.

I’m also helping another friend prepare for a surgery, which means
going with her to pre-op appointments and caregiver classes, and
helping her to find a qualified person to aid her after the surgery.

My friend’s surgery is next Friday and my old friend who lives in
Vancouver arrives in San Francisco a few days later.

I did make time this week to work on the illustrations and a video
for Chapter 8 of Hullaba Lulu on Teagan’s Books.

I had fun making the video. I hope you like it too.

Still Life with Giorgio de Chirico

It’s Jazz Wednesday’s on Teagan’s Books and
time for another episode of Hulaba Lulu.

Lulu stands at the nexus of Pittura Metafisica
and Metropolis.

The Nexus of Pittura Metafisica and Metropolis.


Pittura Metafisica is one of the words Teagan must
use in the writing of Hulaba Lulu.

For Chapter Seven’s illustrations, I used some of the ideas
of proponents of Pittura Metafisica, such as a dreamlike
juxtaposition of incongruous objects and a disquieting air
of mystery, though I hope my images are more humorous
than disquieting.

of Hullaba Lulu!
